Addressing formats
Every address and city in Sweden has its own unique postcode, therefore it is very important that they are used. This is why addresses are generally only two lines long.

The five digits are separated by a space after the first three digits. The code should be written on the left of the city name, on the same line.

It is usual that the city name is capitalised.

A. Example
Company name
Upplagavagen 10
